It’s the biggest mystery of the 2012 NBA Draft: Who is Tyler Zeller’s girlfriend? We’ve scoured Google, Twitter, MySpace, etc. and can’t come up with a name. In 2012, how is that even possible? Shouldn’t this concern the Cleveland Cavaliers (his new team) that Zeller is so secretive that he doesn’t even reveal his girlfriend until the Draft?
SI.com: You were probably prepared for teams to dive into your background, right? To hear about how they had called your high school coach’s cousin about you?
Zeller: Yeah. Some of it is they try to get to know you as a person, and I just try to be myself. Some things they have to check, like if you’ve ever been arrested. And I have nothing to hide. But with one team, we were out at a meeting, and one of their guys just said, “Hey, how’s your girlfriend?” And thought, “Umm … I never told you I had a girlfriend.” I was like, “Oh, damn.”
One of you has a name to drop on us. Facebook photos too much to ask tonight?
*We’re adding a shot of Zeller’s mom because some of you freaks enjoy those screencaps.
